I have tried to turn off the new shuffle play (using the 'I'). When I push this it says I need to upgrade to premium. I already do have premium. How do I get my songs playing in their right playlist order?
Solution by Matt Suda:
If you have a premium subscription, you will be able to turn off shuffle in the iPhone app.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Pull the song up on the page where you see a picture of the album cover and down in the left hand corner are two sets of arrows.. Turn the top set from green to gray and you will turn shuffle mode off.
I'm not seeing the i at the top of the screen on my Iphone 5 while the song is playing...Please help!
Thank you. I don't think I ever would have found a way to run shuffle off. This has been driving me crazy. I was about to cancel and resume an RDIO subscription. Spotify, this is an easy UI fix. Please, please, please kill the huge shuffle play button!
I've detailed some further instructions on how to do this on the latest app version as of 10/01/2014. This is on an iPhone 5 running iOS 8.
Note: this only works for premium subscriptions.
Hopefully this helps! Let me know if you need any further help.
1. Open up your playlist or queue so your list of songs is visible like in the screenshot below. Tap the area at the bottom of the screen (while a song is playing) that shows the album cover and other details.
2. A screen that looks like this should appear. Make sure the tangled arrows are deselected (they should be white, not green)
I can't find the "i" that people speak of. I have an iphone 5 - is that my problem?? I'm listening to classical music and it's making me crazy that it always plays in shuffle.....
Kindly explain how you solved it. I am using Spotify on an iPhone and haven't seen any options so far to turn off Shuffle Play. Thank you!
Thank you!! That was driving me nuts.
I am having the same problem as others had -- I can't turn off Shuffle for my playlists -- and I don't see an "i" at the top of the screen when I am playing a song. Any other pointers? I'm using an iPhone 4S if that matter.
I've read that if I tap the "i" at the top of the screen, I can stop spotify from shuffle mode but I don't see the "i".... HELP!!
My new Android phone doesn't have the 'i' button either. And it is a DUMB user interface choice to have a giant button control to turn on a feature and then to hide the control to disable it...unless your goal is to frustrate users. Hummm....so THAT'S the goal!!!
Thank you, Thank you! That was driving me crazy as well!
I cannot find an "i" at the top of the page when my songs are playing on my iphone. This shuffle garbage is driving me nuts. How do I eliminate it? Where is the "i"?
I saw those arrows but was too pissed about the whole thing to think clearly. Thank you!
